Post Miami Dolphins: Tony Sparano pleased with Nolan Carroll
Quote:
Miami Dolphins coach Tony Sparano was highly complimentary of three rookies from this year’s draft class in today’s media session.

Jared Odrick and Koa Misi, the Dolphins’ top two picks, have brought impressive energy, Sparano said. And then there’s Nolan Carroll.

The fifth-round pick out of Maryland isn’t just impressing on the field, where his deflection led to Charlie Anderson’s interception of a Tyler Thigpen pass on the first series of Saturday’s scrimmage. Carroll is also continues to work on kickoff returns and in the nickel package as the slot corner.

“He’s picked things up right away, from the beginning, really never hesitated,” Sparano said. “He has been very, very sharp mentally. This kid really is a mature guy, he really is. Just watching him walk around this bulding, watching his mannerisms, it reminds me of watching a veteran player at that position.

“Now that’s saying an awful lot about him. We’ll see if he turns into Jekyll and Hyde when we get out there and play a game this weekend.”

...

Nate Garner worked with the starting unit at left guard today. Richie Incognito was second team while Donald Thomas has been bounced back to third-string right guard. … Joe Berger got all the snaps with the first unit at center, while rookie third rounder John Jerry remained as the starting right guard. …
